    A two finger click (or tap) right clicks, so could that be what you're doing?

    It's really exciting to see actual touchpad gestures reaching as far as the window manager!
    The three finger gestures are a little tricky, though. I suspect there may just be too many of them, so I end up triggering the wrong ones sometimes. Three finger pinch definitely seems to be misbehaving,. Dragging three fingers _up_ will maximize a window (not really a pinching motion), but I can't find a similar gesture to unmaximize.

    I had the clunky pointer movement as well, but it got better when I adjusted sensitivity / acceleration in system settings. The defaults weren't working for me, and I suspect the ugly feeling could have just stemmed from that.

    Has anyone tried a USB 3.0 port replicator? Like the Targus USB 3.0 Docking Station or the Lenovo USB 3.0 Dock?

    Does it work at all? Any experience is welcome!

    i don't seem to get it right to actually do anything once the grab handles appear. Also four finger dash open works.

    But it all seems a bit clunky, doesn't always work. maybe cos I'm just not used to the mutitouch gesture stuff. I just use scroll, paste and click. I use alt left click and hold for drag and alt middle click to resize apps.

    Thanks, I figured out the 2-finger tap. But, it seems I was having problems due to a hardware issue with the touchpad where the bottom right corner on the touchpad becomes unresponsive. I am curious to see if anybody else experiences this, so I am bolding it

    I am not sure what causes the corner to go dead, but it has happened to me about 3 times (2 when still using the evdev driver). The dead corner survives soft reboots. Only completely powering down the machine brings the corner back to life.

    Needless to say, this confuses the gesture recognition and was giving me choppy performance...

    Anybody else seeing this? Particularly people who use suspend or who otherwise have long system uptimes?

    It took me a bit of time to figure it out because I discovered the feature in fullscreen Chrome, where it doesn't really do much. I found that once you 3-tap you can then grab the handles with a normal click to resize and move. You can also try to do a 3-drag to move the window around, but the Cypress driver seems to have buggy 3-drag at the moment.

Re the latter, according to Barton George of Project Sputnik, we should see an updated touchpad driver very soon.



    To fix Screen Brightness, I added Kamal Mostoafa's kernel PPA:

    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:kamalmostafa/dellxps
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    I also disabled bluetooth at boot (to save a little battery life) by adding the rfkill command to my rc.local file:
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/rc.local
    Add the following line (above the "exit 0" line):
    Code:
    rfkill block bluetooth
    Hi,

    I'm updated the system and than reboot.
    but the mouse can nat to move......

    Exclamation Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    I am using these PPAs on my XPS 13.

    * https://launchpad.net/~kamalmostafa/+archive/dellxps
    * https://launchpad.net/~vanhoof/+arch...ernate-enabled

    Brightness, touchpad and the hibernation all work great. But the problem is the wireless network when connecting to WAP2 Enterprise.

    When I am running live CD of 11.04, the WAP2 Enterprise wireless works great.

    Anybody is seeing the same issue?

    I have this also. Where I work uses a WPA2 enterprise configuration, so I have to resort to using the guest network and then SSHing or VPNing back... very frustrating.

    There is a bug in launchpad for this issue. It is not specific to the XPS, but Ubuntu 12.04 in general:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...nt/+bug/971753

    the problem seems to be with the version of openssl that Precise builds wpasupplicant against:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...nt/+bug/969343

    some people have reported success by rolling back their version of openssl, but I haven't had time to try it since I can only troubleshoot it at work.

    Re: Dell XPS 13 ultrabook compatibility

    In case anybody was noticing intermittent issues with the Cypress trackpad driver, there's a new kernel at the Project Sputnik PPA.

    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:kamalmostafa/dellxps
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    Should fix any issues on either 32 bit or 64 bit builds related to the system having trouble recognizing the touchpad as the new CyPS/2 Cypress Touchpad after upgrading.

    At the uni I am connecting to a WPA2 Enterprise Network (Authentication: PEAP, Inner authentication: MSCHAPv2) with no problems. What sort of authentication mechanisms are you dealing with?

    PS: I am booting with the noapic option, and I turn the wirless power management off at boot (/sbin/iwconfig wlan0 power off).
